Draft as SBC, clear amber beer, white head. Aroma lager and malt. Taste is clean lager, malt. Palate is light. This is light and refreshing.

Reviewed from notes. Growler. This was poured into a stange. The appearance was a nice looking hazy to slightly transparent yellow to light orange color. A layer of white foamy head sat at the top and dissipated nicely leaving some light lacing sliding into the beer. The smell had a sweet to grassy fresh citrus blend. The taste was mainly the same leading with a fair citrus blend into the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed good for the style and for me as it made up for lack of bitterness as a kolsch should. Overall, I say as a kolsch, it works. Definitely a Summer pounder.

SHIG (4963) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Draft: Poured clear with a whispery white head. Sour grain aroma. Taste is nice corn and light sour grain. Refreshing overall.

OldGrowth (3474) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Pint at Humpy’s. Good aroma, grassy, sourdough. Clean golden orange color. Nice fluffy head. Good lace. Bitter flavor. Light body, thin mouthfeel, crisp bitter finish. Solid, easy to drink. Nothing distinguishing, classic summer lawnmower.

[Tap] Tried this at the brewery in mid-September. Pours a clear golden color with a fizzy head. Nose is of grassy hops and sweet grains. Sweet and grainy taste includes soft hops, thin citrus and cereal grains. Nice body for the style. Dry finish. A good Kolsch, definitely one of the better ones I’ve had recently.

Sampled at Repeal of Prohibition fest 2011 - Pours clear yellow with a white head. The aroma has clean kolsch malt, light hops and a clean brightness to it. The body is light with a crisp bite and a nice amount of carbonation. The taste has pale malt, sulfur and spicy hops. Really nice kolsch.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 22, 2011
tasted 4/16/11. Schlafly’s Repeal of Prohibition festival. Filtered with a honey golden hue. Lacing white head. Aromas of honey and soggy malts. Medium bodied, bitter and malty. Tangy palate with a subtle nutty malty flavor. Good dose of grassy hops. Nice sweet/bitter dichotomy that has a crisp dry finish.

phaleslu (10462) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2011
Draft sample at the Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition Festival. Just labeled ’Kolsch’ and served at the tap next to the Schlafly Kolsch. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma of grassy hops, pale malts, straw, and sweet bread. Flavor of grassy hops, pale and bready malts, sugar, straw, and minerals. Light-bodied, with high carbonation and a crisp, dry mouthfeel. Not a bad kolsch.

GodOfThunder (1249) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 19, 2010
Draft at Humpy’s in Anchorage. Pours a bright golden yellow with a good amount of fizz. Aroma is nobel hops but somewhat subdued. Flavor is smooth and refreshing, lots of grasses and nobel hops. A great kolsch.
